S54: Biochemistry Education: Discussion of the Laboratory Environment

Biochemistry education is unique in that students must synthesize learning from many courses (e.g., chemistry and biology) and attain a high-level of representational competence to be successful. Additionally, biochemistry education is unique in that the host department for undergraduate biochemistry courses can be found in many disciplines such as chemistry, biochemistry, microbiology, and medicine. Thus, research studies and discussions of practice within the laboratory can be found in many journals and spanning a number of disciplines. The purpose of this symposium is to provide a forum for biochemistry education researchers and practitioners to present their work in the biochemistry teaching laboratory.

Presider: Kimberly J. Linenberger, Kennesaw State University
